Bread and Spread

Homemade mini organic whole wheat braid; organic peanut butter & honey spread; cream cheese spread (organic cream cheese, diced, soaked sundried peaches and a touch of homemade organic applesauce); organic whole wheat lemon square; halved pear.  The sundried peaches came from my weekly Full Belly CSA, the lemon square was made with lemons from our tree; and the apples had been picked at an orchard about an hour from here and canned this past fall as applesauce. I packed a spoon for the spreads as I've learned it is easier for small hands to manage (and less dangerous) than a knife.

What did you soak the dried peaches in? I am also a fullbelly CSA member and though we ate one or two right from the bag when they arrived, since then our dried peaches have just been sitting on the counter abandoned.

I treated them like sundried tomatotoes and poured boiling water over the top (just enough to cover the peaches) and then placed a dish over the bowl to keep the heat in. I let them sit for about 15 mins. until they were soft enough to chop. A little goes a long way. I soaked 5 halves and that was more than enough to make a cup of cream cheese spread - I stuck the extra peach bits in some leftover brown rice and added some pecans for a quick lunch for myself.
